  1. – The onion ought to be sliced very skinny for getting the best texture. My MIL makes use of a slicer used to make chips. I used a really sharp knife for slicing.
  2. – Rice flour is added to offer a slight crispness to the pakoda. I like to recommend including it, nonetheless you’ll be able to skip it if you do not have it helpful.
  3. – Scorching oil is added to the flour to get a comfortable pakoda. If not added, the pakoda may end up very onerous to chew into.
  4. – Add simply little water to bind all substances collectively. Don’t add extra water. The pakoda will take in extra oil.
  5. – Whereas mixing the batter, do it gently and likewise don’t over combine the batter. Else you’d find yourself with a tough pakoda.
